Terrapin Crossroads is very pricey, check out their menu. It's definetly upper middle class, not for the common working person.

Long ago it was talked up as a grate affordable place to go to. Oh well. Is a bowl of Oatmeal that bad for $7? They ARE Steel Cut :) plus a $3.50 House Coffee is about the same as at that called Starfuc...Starbucks

I love that he liked SOTM because he was a kid and it was a space thing. That's cute.

If I were in SF I'd check out Terrapin. Why not? Pricey, yeah, but it looks pretty yummy, and I guess a meal for two would cost less than tix for two to DSO :-)

But here's what gets me. "The Grate Room"? Like, without any irony? And seriously, an egg dish called "Phil's Scramble"? A tequila drink called "Jill's Chill"? "Brian's Grilled Cheese Sandwich"? I don't spot Grahame's, so maybe he was the only one who had the sense to get totally embarassed by the cheesiness. (OK, I'm probably just missing it. I'm sure they have "Grahame's Crackers" or something.)

I want to steal their recipes, though.

And I wish the Lesh Boys well. Although in my book it's going to be hard to beat Levon's daughter Amy Helm and her band Ollabelle ...
